well, im twenty something. I was raised in a booming mining town and fled eagerly to the city to rid myself of the stink of ore. I dig jazz, twentieth century poetry and knitting. i find myself currently living in a fibro shotgun shack in suburbia.
I walk a lot. I like to walk and take things in, recit poems to myself or sing old negro spirituals as i preambulate through paddocks or along the beach. I hate politics. I love paddocks. I love my guitar, love playing it, shit, i love the smell of the damn thing. My family are my friends and my friends are a family. God thats cheesy.
I am smooth, silky, and managable
I will watch any movie once, and then as many times as i want if its good; Brick was a brilliant film, any muppets movie, although I prefer the first one, the new one was brilliant. Lot of great English cinema happening at the moment, films like dead man walking and submarine, this is England. And I love Australian cinema, most any film made in Australia. Autoluminescent: the Rowland S Howard doco (actually I watch a fuckload of documentaries nowadays KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!) And I love Doctor Who, and I am okay with that. I dig Harold and Maude, Network, Twin Peaks (anything Lynch) and the work of Wes Anderson.
My music taste it pretty broad, Everything from American 1930 - 1950's blues. Jazz (the bop era, Davis, Mingus, Coltrane & Monk) Bob Dylan and David Peel and the Holy Modal Rounders. Tom Waits and the Stooges and Nick Cave and The bad seeds/grinderman/the birthday party, Rowland S Howard is my hero. The scientists, the triffids. lets just say anything from the seventies and eighties Australian punk scene.
And Paul Kelly. Always Paul Kelly.
I could on like this for days.
